We currently have multiple tab tags open on our site:

Tabs are a graphical user interface feature that allows multiple documents to be contained within a single window.

The tag has no usage guidance, can you help us create it?

The last possibly from an earlier cleanup.

I suggest moving the remaining browser based tags to browser-tabs or all to tabbed-interface. (which a browser interface is just one specific instance off. So tab-interface would be more generic than browser-tab, worksheet-tab, beer-on-tab, ...)

  • Are browser tags any different than everything else tagged as "tabs"? Or are there multiple "tab" categories that are remaining? Dec 15, 2015 at 15:54

I don't see the point in any tab-related tag. I'd vote for cleaning them all up and synonymizing them with .

The last part is a joke ;P

    Concur. I don't think there's anything in-scope for SuperUser that involves tabs, which is both different from other problems affecting a given product and universally-applicable to tab-related problems in all applications.

  • So, tabs are not Super. ;-)

    @clacke Tabs are awesome. But telling people that your problem involves tabs is as helpful as telling people that your problem involves buttons. It isn't helpful at all. Dec 17, 2015 at 19:46

    I have a problem that involves computers. Can we make a tag for that? Dec 21, 2015 at 5:33
  • @DanHenderson I couldn't have said it better myself! Of course we use tabs every day, but will we ever need a question about the tabs themselves?

    Jokes aside, has anyone read the original cleanup @Hennes mentions? meta.superuser.com/questions/3892/merge-tags-tab-and-tabs?lq=1 points out there are legitimate questions related to the tab-key and/or the tab-character.

  • @OliverSalzburg A quick look at the tabs and browser-tabs tags shows that there are many questions where the tag is more noise than signal, but also several that are actually specifically about the interaction between tabs, tab-specific preferences or plugins etc.
